“If we look at the we can see a in black and white. the photo looks like an authentic advert for the , Calvin Klein. More precisely for it’s perfume , “Obsession”, for women.
In the foreground we can see the back of a naked - woman who is holding her stomach, on the ground.
Upon closer scrutiny our eye is attracted to the background where we also see a white toilet.
Despite the elegance of the photo and its to the classic black and white of Calvin Klein’s fashion ads the message is very -.
In my opinion, this advert aims to denounce the power that advertising has over women. It especially has an that criticises the long-term effects of women’s “obsession” with corresponding to the accepted norms of beauty.
What I mean to say is that women feel confident and attractive if they are slim and sometimes dieting can lead to more pathological illnesses such as bulimia. Despite external signs of beauty and happiness, some women, even very famous ones like Lady Diana for instance, were prisoners to their illness.
To conclude, as far as I’m concerned this advert is very because the sensuality and femininity of the photograph hide a much darker truth: the sadness and pain that some women can feel because they do not feel beautiful if they compare themselves to top-models.
Thank you for your attention.
